I don't use anything but the Eee PC with my Arduino - I think they make a perfect pair. Who'd have thought you could play with programmable microcontrollers while sitting on your sofa?

Andrew

My feelings exactly.

Yeah, it is a bit broken on the Asus isn't it? I was wondering if a separate window for the serial monitor area might help. Maybe a dockable window so you can have it all in one as at present or tear it off and alt-tab between them.

Andrew

Should be pretty easy to make the serial monitor panel show above the editor panel if the window size is less than 500px. I will try to take a look at it (since I do most of my editing on my EEE) and see if I can provide a patch to fix it.

I would also be willing to help out. Just let me know.

Looking good!

More a passing thought then a suggestion, but I was wondering if you would gain real estate and lower cost replacing the contrast pot with a  transistor and capacitor  driven from a spare onboard pwm pin.  Providing the arduino with software commands to increase and decrease contrast may be more convenient then getting at the pot.

Other people may have had different experiences but I have always found that I only adjust the contrast once.

Presumably you will be using the RW line rather than delays to determine when the LCD is ready to accept data.
Yep. Its got a dedicated chip so there is no need to cut corners with the pins. smiley

Also I just realised that I can make the backlight brightness variable.

Not sure if you have taken a look at Peter Anderson's K107 backpack. Should at least provide a good reference for designing your own backpack..

Love the new design. It is great to see that you got rid of the big 7805 which always seemed to be in the way.

Really had to hunt for it but here it is. (From google cache)

Hope this is helpful.

I know I have a bunch of links to some information that you should find useful. I will attempt to dig them up and post them in a reply for you.

A quick google search for the term "TENS" should provide you with lots of information.

Assuming it isn't outside the scope of your project you could add a simple IR receiver circuit to your device that recognizes 0-9 (and something like # as a terminator) from a remote you have lying around.

try Interacess Electronic Media Art Centre- they are having a workshop in January.

Thanks Daniel2. I just found out about interaccess a few days ago. I was under the impression it was more 'art focused' than development focused.

Does anyone know if there is currently an Arduino (or similar) group in Toronto, Ontario, Canada?
